Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Round of 16…. THE LAST MATCH

Seven of the final eight have been decided with one more to go… Can the USA beat all the odds and make the Quarter Finals? Will Belgium make it four out of the last eight coming from Europe.
Whichever team goes thru, won't be too worried about the Argies!!
I will be around for the first half and then off to college

Former England defender Danny Mills
BBC Radio 5 live
Belgium v USA (21:00 BST)

"If USA did beat Belgium I'm not sure how much of an upset it would be. I've seen Belgium play a few times here and they have not performed as well as we wanted. Their star players are yet to come to the fore, but that could change.
"USA have a fantastic work rate and they could beat Belgium. It would be slightly unexpected but on current form you could not call it a massive upset."

Timmy saves easily from Hazard. Belgium with most of the possession.

The teams are taking the mandatory thirty minute water break as Fabian Johnson is being stretchered off. It appears to be an injured hammy and Yedlin comes on in his place.

Thanks for keeping the home fires burning yesterday, lads. It was a busy one for me. I did get a chance to see the US fall to Belgium - a valiant effort. But we were always second best.
